I think it looks Dutch cause of the lady wearing a hat.


I bought this from an op shop because I liked the frame it was in and under the mat board I found a signature and title of the painting but I can’t read it.

What does this mean?

This is an original watercolor and ink painting on paper with a Dutch scene of people outdoors wth a house near the water. There is a windmill and a steepled church in the atmospheric background and the thatched gabled roof home is also Dutch or Flemish in style. The painting is on paper and illegibly signed at lower right. The condition is fair as the paper edges have chipped and appear brittle. The best way to conserve this would be to have it placed on an archival linen backing to extend its life. The estimate is based on actual apst sales of comparables.

Thank you so much for the appraisal I really appreciate it. I was wondering if you knew any other information like who painted it cause I can’t read the signature properly and the name of the painting. If you can’t get that information that’s totally fine, many thanks Peta-ann

If you would like to add more images of the signature from different angles, I *might* be able to decipher the signature for you. It is not easy to discern in the photo here. As for title, most works are given a descriptive 'title' in an auction catalogue even though the artist did not title their work themselves. If titled, an artist would generally add that to the backside or verso. Case in point, the Mona Lisa was not given the name by its painter, Leonardo da Vinci. Instead, an art critic described as a 'Mona Lisa' when the work was already 100 years old, and the description has remained attached to the work ever since.

Thank you. I have added a few more pictures of the signature and what looks to be a title of the painting as well. If u are able to decipher the signature that would be amazing. Thank you very very much.
